I recently decided to host an outdoor wine and dessert party for all my closest girlfriends. I wanted to really make it special, considering most of them are sleep and 'fun' deprived mothers and/or workaholics. Although the desserts were yummy, the wine fantastic and the decorations pretty, the best part by far was being able to catch up with everyone without having to chase the kiddos around. And get this...we actually all ditched the sweats for some pretty attire.
I made simple DIY wine glass tags with the first initial of every guest so we could distinguish whose was whose.
Guests who were pregnant drank out of cute little mason jars.
On the menu: chocolate mouse, panna cotta with peaches in lime syrup, gluten free cupcakes and Italian cookies
Teacups were family heirlooms...we all got so drunk, we never even got to use them LOL
Some girls weren't as cooperative with the camera....(ahem Sara)
Guests got to take home blueberry muffins as favors for the following morning.
Party was a success! Round two is in the works....
